Try Whistling This
by artist Nikki McIvor
This particular kookaburra has such a manic cry that it would be virtually impossible to emulate it by whistling, hence the title Try Whistling This.
Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of a genus native to Australia and New Guinea, which grow to between 28–42 cm in length. The name is a loanword from Wiradjuri guuguubarra, onomatopoeic of its call.
